Solo improvisation with the body and voice
Andrew uses a skills approach to improvisation. You will develop your skills of generation and shaping content whilst working between vocal and physical modes. His work is further fueled by the spirit of communication and shared pleasure. Participants will be encouraged to become their own editor in performance, by developing skills of shifting their point of attention, developing texture and maintaining clarity. It is suitable for people interested in deepening their understanding of themselves as a performer at any level, and finding resources that will enrich their improvisational performing. Participants should come expecting to enjoy themselves.
